Would like to get some advice from all of you so I can learn a little on
this before contacting
Have a 25 yr old house in which the upstairs shower stall is one of those
types, where most of it goes in as a single unit.
It's about 6 feet high, which leaves the remainder to the ceiling, and the
ceiling itself, just
painted drywall. It has begun to flake.
I am thinking of asking a contractor to come in and discuss the possibility
of doing the rest of the
walls and the ceiling with additional plastic.
a. Is this feasible ?
b. After scraping the flakes off, need there be any surface treatment or
priming (e.g. with that Zssner product)
beforehand ? Can the primer, if needed, go directly over the existing
(I'm assuming the drywall underneath the flakes is still in
"reasonably" good shape)
c. If not in good shape, what do I do ?
d. As always, there's always a complication. The ceiling over the stall is
curved. Not a plane surface that slopes, an actual
curve to the outside walls. Not drastic, but a pretty fair amount of
curvature. If "plastic'd" over, can they handle a curved surface ?
e. How should the joints be sealed ? RTV Silicone ?
Any other options, thoughts on what else to ask the contractors, etc., would
be much appreciated.
